Toronto based, Julian Taylor Band, is a culmination of long-lasting friendships and a collective of accomplished musicians, all fluent in different musical cultures and in virtually every genre. Under front-man Julian Taylor’s direction, the band consistently delivers soulful performances and strives to re-contextualize “soul music,” not as another genre that can be put into a box defined by racial precedent or sound requirements, but as a medium that truly speaks to the soul. The result is solid, unabashedly positive performances of soul, rock and R&B fusion - or rather, a form of modern rhythm and blues infused with rock ‘n’ roll. For fans of Fitz & The Tantrums, The Black Keys, Hall & Oates, Stevie Wonder, Allen Stone.
“All eclectic and all-encompassing; well-crafted songs, resulting in highly energetic and incredibly entertaining performances.” - CBC Radio
